Exposure to noise more than 80dB can cause permanent hearing loss. Examples for loud noises that can damage our natural hearing capacity are traffic noise at a busy junction, industrial noise, machinery noise, loud music at pubs, live concerts etc. Short term exposure to loud noise can also cause a temporary change in hearing (your ears may feel stuffed up) or a ringing in your ears (tinnitus). These short-term problems may go away within a few minutes or hours after leaving the noisy area. However, repeated exposures to loud noise can lead to permanent tinnitus and/or hearing loss.

As nothing can replace our natural hearing, we at Hearing wellness clinic gives high level importance to Hearing Protection also. Our ear protective devices (EPD) are of international standards which are customized based on ones ear canal size. We consider ones need of protection before advising them the type of EPD to use. For eg: DJ’s and musicians are advised to use our Musicians ear plugs where as an industrial worker is advised to use noise filters or solid ear plugs. Our EPD’s include swimmer’s ear plugs, Noise filters, Musician’s ear plugs, Solid ear plugs, Sleeping ear plugs. All these are highly durable, made of imported material (soft) and can be used for a long period of time without any kind of wear and tear.

We always advice everyone who come across unavoidable noisy situations to use an EPD. Traffic policemen, DJ’s, RJ’s, Industrial workers, young party crowd, regular swimmers are few of them.
